      Way Too Expensive for What You Get

      Pros: Nice facility, comfortable beds. Made us a to-go breakfast for our 4:30 a.m departure. Keep snacks (but not drinks) available all the time.

      Cons: Owner talked for one sold hour upon our arrival, before we ever got to the room. We were left to find the room ourselves. Breakfast very plain, but plentiful. Table not set; serve yourself buffet style, collecting dishes and silverware. Bus your dishes back to the kitchen. Internet service quite poor--down completely for half the time we were there. House inconveniently located if you have no car; there is a bus, but it runs only once an hour. You can walk to downtown (1.2 miles to the center of town; 1.5 miles to the National Park), and the walking is not scenic; just through neighborhoods. Uphill all the way back. Owner somewhat bossy. No shoes allowed in house; strict instructions about where to leave the key on our early checkout--repeated three different times. The owners are friendly, but more managing than welcoming and NO special services--carry your own bags, get yourself out of the house when you leave, and so on.

      None of these problems is, in itself, particularly awful, but given the price we paid, they are unacceptable. When I booked the room, 8 months in advance, I was told that the only room available for all three nights was the suite, by far the most expensive room in the house. I had a hard time believing that this was true--I think the owner simply wanted to ensure that her most expensive room was rented first. My choice was to take it or choose another hotel. This was highly reviewed, and as it was a special occasion, I took it, but I would not do so again. This house may be much more satisfactory if you can get one of the cheaper rooms, but I recommend trying elsewhere.

      Counting Stars and Eagles

      ... injuries prevent him from returning to the wild. Volta was injured because eagles have a wingspan wider than power lines.

      After Lacie's talk, we watched eagles in the flight training center, an enclosure where we can watch the birds, but they can’t see or hear us.

      We walked through a forested area outside to visit the eagles, falcons, hawks, owls and other birds. Each ...

      ... our hike, we took the bus into town arriving around 6:00PM. Locals were out and about enjoying the warm weather. We enjoyed our walk around town and to the Sitka National Historical Park to see the many replica totem poles. Back on the ship, we changed for dinner. We had a window table to watch the ship push away from the dock at 8:45PM. Before dinner was finished, we began to see the clouds that threaten rain for the next stops on our ...

Mason caught one of the first of the day, and one of the largest king salmon. I got to get out for a but to take some pics in the rain with Hannah on the island trails. Lunchtime!

      The Anti-Socials at Sea

      A travel blog entry by lrandal on Jul 26, 2013

      After our first cruise, in 2011, when we kept pretty much to ourselves, always ate dinner as a twosome, and never tried shuffleboard, cooking lessons, or bingo, I concluded that we were Antisocial Baddies who really had to make an effort to connect with other people this time around.

      We aren't. It doesn't suit us. It was just about worth the cost of this cruise to see that it's just the way we ...

      ... before hunkering down for the four and a half ferry trip.

      The weather was nice with some blue skies as we headed south down the end of the Lynn Canal. We soon encountered a big fog bank that took us about three hours to get through and really slowed us down. Last night when we were picking up Leo at the airport the last flight to Sitka from Juneau was cancelled and there were a lot folks we saw at the airport ...
